  • This is my 3rd pregnancy and it is a lot different than the others. This one has been a lot easier so far, I started showing later than the others, this one is a boy and the other 2 are girls, and I'm carrying a lot higher than I did with the girls.

  • Yes! I had no symptoms what so ever, no low blood pressure, it was the easiest pregnancy of the 3!

  • Yep. It was really hard on me, too. I went from gaining about 30lbs with each of my previous pregnancies, to gaining 90! I could hardly walk beyond 6 months, my hips and woohoo hurt so bad. I poured milk out of my breasts from month 5 on. Turns out I had 40 lbs of water in me, and after I gave birth it settled in my chest and I literally could have died from it. I was scared to go to sleep. The good news is that I lost all the water within a couple weeks of delivering, but I am still quite fat....gotta work on that now. Sigh. I ate being pregnant, and I feel for you.

  • I have 2 kids. The 3rd trimester was completely different with each one. With my first I had no bh contraction, I was constipated, I lost my plug, and a few weeks later my water broke. With my 2nd I had bh contractions like crazy, no constipation, I never lost my plug and my water didnt break naturally.

  • Yes.
    Both my first and second pregnancies were very similar, in about every way. From size, to symptoms, to showing, all of it.
    The third pregnancy - aside from the complication caused by assault - has been different.

    With the first two I would get dizzy often bc of low Bp. I lost 20-30 lbs. In my 1st trimester with the first two due to HG (clinically severe morning sickness), then I gained it back +20 lbs. I had pregnancy gingivitis and a feeling of being full.
    Now, I lost 15+ in my first trimester, but gained it all back +20 lbs so far, and I'm not done.
    With the others, I started showing earlier. I didn't start showing with this pregnancy until 6+ mo. I did not get gingivitis like in my first two pregnancies (mild anemia, and occasional dizziness aside).
    However, with this one I get dizzy just laying down, get headaches, and REFLUX.
    The other different thing is my Colostrom started leaking lightly around 4.5 months.

  • Yes, I am pregnant with my third and in a lot of ways it is different. I felt sick in the beginning a lot, but never actually threw up. With my two boys, I puked all.the.time. I couldnt eat anything salty, and my moods were different. I carried higher as well. There are lots more, but those are the biggest things.

    I am having a girl after 2 boys.
